I am very happy to share the news that I will be showcasing recent work in Vancouver in June 2019.
The title of the showcase, Fire & Flood, seems very relevant now given what people across Australia are experiencing at the moment.
However it was back in November 2018 I put together the proposal that combined works from my Unleashing Hell (bushfires) series with works from the recent Filter exhibition (rising sea levels).
Acronym alert. IECA and COCE2019 at UBC. The event is the 15th Biennial Conference on Communication and Environment (COCE) presented by the International Environmental Communication Association at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver campus.
The conference will bring together scholars, practitioners, artists, students and concerned citizens from around the world to share research, good practices, experience, and stories in order to help foster more effective, inspiring, ethical, and hopeful environmental and sustainability communication.https://theieca.org/conference/coce-2019-vancouver
Those from Adelaide, and elsewhere of course, may be familiar with Ackroyd & Harvey who installed the series of large living portraits at Womadelaide 2018. They were Keynote Speakers at COCE 2015 in Bolder, Colorado.
Over twenty countries will be represented at the event. I have seen the draft conference program (19 pages, no line breaks), but it will not be made public for a couple of months.
I will share more news on this as it becomes available. And fingers crossed for the arts grant applications I have been writing day and night lately.
